Queens Of The Stone Age have unveiled an interactive video for their track 'The Vampyre Of Time And Memory'.

The 'interactive video experience' has been directed by Kii Arens and Jason Trucco and designed and developed by Darknet for The Creators Project. Allowing the watcher to click through to different scenes, all set up in haunted house, it is said to reimagine the music video "in the context of a virtual art installation". Watch the interactive version of the video at Vampyreoftimeandmemory.com or scroll down to watch the straighter 'director's cut' of the video, which includes elements of all of the separate visual settings of the video.

Speaking about the video, directors Arens and Trucco said: "Working on this Queens video was the ultimate artistic joyride. Joshua Homme and company gave us the creative keys to the car from word go… and Josh has a badass car. Vampyre is such a thick track… On the technology side, Darknet was the perfect forward-thinking company to push the boundaries of music video presentation. All art is technology, technology that shares an experience or an idea. Vampyre uses all the tools available to us today to share a meaningful common experience."

Meanwhile, '...Like Cologne', a Spotify exclusive, will be released tomorrow (November 19), a three track EP recorded at the Kulturkirche in Cologne, Germany in September. This will be followed by the '...Like Clockwork' black-on-black limited edition high quality black vinyl Black Friday Edition of the band's most recent album, which will come out on November 29, after their current UK and Ireland tour dates.
